Nugget Turkey

Hi everyone today I thought I would share a fun project with you… a Nugget Turkey. I think they are so stinking cute! And they’re are so much fun to make with a few simple supplies. Of course anything with chocolate around my house is a hit – how about yours?

Nugget Turkey

To bring a Thanksgiving smile to your loved ones faces you’ll need to gather the following supplies to make your Nugget Turkey.

More Mustard DSP (I used the polka dot print from the Regals DSP Stack: 1″ x 3″ and some for punching

Chocolate Chip and Pumpkin Pie CS: for punching

Pumpkin Pie CS: 3/8″ x 3/8″

1 3/4″ Scallop Circle Punch

1″ Circle Punch

Googlies (from the Holiday Catalog – they are self stick! Isnt that great!)

Glue Dots

Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Paper Snips

Hershey’s Nuggets (which ever type floats your boat – not sure? Taste test them after all Thanksgiving is calorie free, right?)

Here’s how you do it –

1. Punch out 3 coordinating tail feathers from you More Mustard DSP and Chocolate Chip and Pumpkin Pie CS using the 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle Punch.
2. Punch 1″ Circle from Chocolate Chip CS. You should have the following pieces and are ready to assemble.

3. Wrap the 1″ x 3″ strip of DSP around your Nugget, and stick the end down using a Glue Dot. (Taste a piece of chocolate to make sure it’s good.)

4. Trim away the bottom 5 scallops from the first tail feather using your Paper Snips.

6. Line up and adhere the first feather on top of the More Mustard DSP feather and trim away 4 scallops. (Why not try and different flavor Nugget, you want to make sure you’re using the right one, right?)

6. Line up and adhere the two layers of feathers on top of the Chocolate Chip CS feather and trim anything off the bottom that shows. (Hmm… Did you say Chocolate Chip – maybe you should check out those Nuggest again?)

7. Attach feathers to the back of the Nugget using a Glue Dot or two.

8. Fold the 3/8″ x 3/8″ piece of Pumpkin Pie CS in half to create the beak and attach this to the 1″ Chocolate Chip Circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Allow to dry.

9. Attach your Googlies to give the little guy eyes – after all aren’t they too cute wiggling around like that? (Oops.. better try another one of those nuggets before you’re done. Want to make sure you tried all the flavors right?)

10. Attach your head of your turkey to the front of your Nugget using a Glue Dot and you’re finished.

Isn’t he cute? Why not make another one – after all there is still chocolate left right?

I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial for my little Nugget Turkey.

Fun with Googly Ghouls

Boy, it seems like all I’ve been doing is running at warp speed lately with all the things going on around here. So I wanted to slow it down a bit and share some of the things that I’ve been stamping. Fall is one of my favorite times of year. The days start to cool a bit, school is all new and exciting for the kids and the holidays are around the corner.

I love to make little treats for people so when I recently held a class with a new group of ladies and wanted to give them a little something special. Chocolate is always a winner, so I pulled out my NEW Holiday Catalog stamp set Googly Ghouls and got to work. This stamp set is just a lot of fun to work with. The images are sooo cute and full of humor – who can resist.

The Googly Ghouls Stamp Set can be purchased as part of a bundle or alone and have our NEW Googlies adhesive backed googly eyes that coordinate with them and bring them to life.

For this project I kept it simple and just stamped the Googly Ghouls images in StazOn Black on Whisper White card stock and then used my 1 3/8″ and Scallop Circle punches. I just love our punches they make things so quick and easy to do!

I think these little Googly Ghouls peppermint patties turned out super cute. The girls liked them on Thursday night – how about you?

P.S. Thankfully my hubby wasn’t home so I was able to get a shot of the chocolate before they were all gone!
